Fruit, owls and enchanted alleys.

Last week, I realized there are actual apples growing on the trees behind our house. I mean, that´s something to be expected, right? When you plant apple trees, you´ll get apples. Still, every fruit that grows in our garden, all by itself, is a wonder to me. Now I only have to keep my boys from shaking them off...And no, these fruit didn´t come from our garden :-) But we had fun making fruit sticks together, and within the last weeks, the girls developed a strong interest in cooking. As this week made me take some time off from my writing that kept me busy for the last 18 months, I find myself with lots of free time on my hands I can use to entertain the kids, with projects such as making these paper owls: If you remember this post, you know about Ronjas love for owls, so when I found these awesome, downloadable templates, I just knew we´d had to give it a try, and it went really well. She did it all by herself, and now the result is proudly being displayed in her tiny, chaotic bedroom, with all the other myriads of owls. And doesn´t Ronja have the most beautifull blue eyes you´ve ever seen?
Speaking of beauty - we´ve found this "secret" passage" to our street, just about two weeks ago. My kids call it their "mystery way", and everytime we pass it they find something else - black currants, dead decaying birds, little barking dogs, and yesterday night even fireflies.
And yes, I know this calls for a certain song, but I think I had that one before (at least the Sam Tui-Version, and I don´t like the original). So, my music for today is this piece: My sister in law recommended Regina Spector quite a while ago to me, but when I first listened to her music, it didn´t convince me. Maybe I wasn´t so attuned to celli, back then. I´m still not sure if I like her other songs, but this one´s amazing, don´t you think?
